Remote villages in Lincolnshire are "totally cut" off under two feet of snow, emergency services have said.

Lincolnshire Police warned that "most roads" in the county had become impassable and urged people not to make journeys "unless absolutely necessary".

Officers said the A52 had become impassable between Boston and Skegness and that they would not be able to reach stranded drivers.

Not even a snowplough was able to get through, the fire service said.
